parts of the world law enforcement are part of the traffic ring. if you come from a country where law enforcement is part of that enslavement, then you are not going to trust law enforcement in another country. sometimes victims that come from another country say i'm better off here no matter how bad this is or no matter how i'm treated. they begin to identify with their trafficker. everything i need from this person. >> where do traffic people live, how do they live, where do they get food, how are they treated? >> they can be forced to work long hours. we had a case where a woman ended up being brought to this country by friends of her family. >> let's get back to that. that sounds like a door we want to open. we are coming back to mosaic. stay with us. >> welcome back to mosaic. today we are talking about a difficult topic. we are talking with sister mary about human trafficking. since 2008 you have won an award and you have a ministry toward this evil. >> we really look, there is three areas we focus in around human trafficking. raising awareness. we do a lot with the community, s

discipline, but holly has come up with a really wonderful solution within law enforcement that we would love you to talk about and it's preventive and solution. >> thank you. it's not going to be a shock to you that i don't have a sizzle reel but i did manage to get a few powerpoint slides in so it's a good thing if i can get my next one. can you advance it for me please? so it is a safety course that i created with yahoo. we partnered together. i started asking questions the first day so my boots are on the ground and i'm in the schools and i love doing what i do, and i believe wholeheartedly and i believe it was the soft power -- yes, i love it. i think it's effective in so many ways, so i had luckily teamed up with the right people at yahoo who were really amazing and just the foresight they saw, and believed in the concept that law enforcement needs to be a piece of this puzzle and have some solutions. we have a unique part in the schools and with kids and this did get certified for the peace officer standards and we get credit for that being police officers and our training and o
there desire to change the president's health care law. just one of 100 examples i could give. there's a lot of things that to a number ofdo hypothetically bizarre things. they could seek to ultimately sell the capital for scrap or disband -- the expressions of approval or disapproval are not in order of the committee. i'm trying to get to a point here. and despite faith, our challenges sometimes in the institution and american people, who would say, that is way off the face. in suggesting that whatever language is necessary, i don't think this congress itss to be bound itself in actions by what the previous congress decided as is evidenced by those who wanted to undermine the president's health care law. i present congress wants to change what a previous congress did. i think that only a congress might be able to change a future rut or changes in the american with disabilities act. it would have to be signed by a president. just creating some balance in that is a reality of any future issue is realistic. >> i largely agree with what you said. if congress decided to amend the ada, it could c
of cyber bullying and that is why i did a remarkable partnership in south florida with local law enforcement who had gone into schools talking about bullying, including cyber bullying and giving people concrete examples of things of situations they saw, it was remarkable. and that is why we will continue to do that work. so i hope today as we move forward you will understand that we are in this together with you at the department of justice. this is an all hands on deck enterprise. there is so much to do. i hope at the end of this day we will indeed all follow the lead of that student, walk out and say what are one or two things i'm going to do differently and better? how are we going to improve this situation? i hope if you take one and only one thing from melinda and my and ruslyn's remarks today, if you have an idea, please bring them to us. we want to learn from you. we are in this together and i want to say thank you because the most important thing we have is a recognition that you understand that this is indeed a national issue for us to deal with. i'm looking forw
it seth's law in honor of her, she had been in and around sacramento for a long time. so the legislation in and of itself, i don't think it's going to work miracles, but it is definitely on people's radar now and i think you hear it in the media more and more. the reason we have a suicide barrier and the reason we are having legislation like this is because of the parents and the families because they are the ones that hurt the most and i would imagine part of the therapeutic thing, you've got to tell this story and telling it in the right place and the right time can be very effective. so seth's law does require that if you witness an act of bullying, that you must report it. >> is that for anybody? >> anyone, but particularly teachers. there is a -- sometimes we see things that aren't very pleasant and if you've ever taken it to muni, you know what i mean. your tendency is to turn away. i heard the word faggot on the play ground when i taught. the teachers were intimidated, they didn't want to be seen to have any empathy because that might reflect on them. it's crazy but that's p
signed into law. gwen: not immigration. >> not guns. not immigration. not -- moved some on energy in terms of executive action. and they'll argue on guns. they did some executive action as well. but nothing of the things they sent to the hill. jobs and most importantly, i think, the president talked during the election last year about the fever breaking. this idea that after he was reelected there wouldn't be the incentive on the part of the opposition to be so opposed to everything that he did. and obviously that turned out not to be the case. the fever if anything seems as hot as ever. gwen: if there's fever about anything it's about health care. let's get to some of our viewers' questions. this virginia voter is exasperated by the health care debate. >> i want to know why they are so afraid of the health care law? is it because maybe the big companies will not support their campaign? gwen: now, that of course is theodora's opinion, karen. but what is the state of this right now? is there fear of the health care law? >> there is fear of the health care law. there has been all al
